All sorts of food to choose from, but we love the burgers! The tater tots are hot and crisp, the beer cold!

Great pub food and fun atmosphere. They have several of their own beers on draft. Lots of seating at the bar, but limited number of tables or booths.

the Tipping Point has a nice, but limited, menu. The portions are huge. The pulled pork Burrito is excellent and large enough to split. Very good drinks, including their own microbrews. Excellent service and a live,y crowd. A great place for a drink, a quick dinner, a date or solo at the bar. Highly recommended.

Stopped in for a beer and lunch this past weekend. The place crowds quickly around lunch with several of the local restaurants closed for a few weeks in the off season. I tried the Tipping Point's own beers, a winter ale, which was quite delicious. My wife had one of the guest tap ciders, Naked Apple cider, which was one... More

This is a regular stop anytime I'm in Waynesville. Actually made a Christmas trip for the primary purpose of going to TP. This is a family friendly brew pub on Main St. with a great selection and consistency of beers for a micro brewery. The food tops the scale for pubs....wings, tacos, chili, fish, poppers, sandwiches....always great quality food, and... More

Stopped in on a recent visit to Waynesville. Really glad we decided to try someplace new this trip. Even heard from a few of the shops we had stopped in along the way how good the place was, and they were right. Happy with everything we had. The fish and chips was some of the best I have had.

Great local tavern and hangout with an excellent selection of food. Fish tacos, veggie burger & gyro is fab! Be sure to get a side of tator tots, they're the GOAT (greatest of all time)!!

This restaurant has limited seating and there is usually a wait on weekends and during the tourist season. The food is consistently good and their Reuben sandwich is one of the best I've had. They have live music on some weekend nights and the performer(s) are usually pretty good. They also brew some of their own beer. I love craft... More
